BETA98H/C

Online

The Beta 98H/C (and the wireless version: WB98H/C) is a premium cardioid condenser instrument microphone that clamps onto the bell of wind instruments or onto the rim of percussion instruments. The integrated gooseneck and ratcheting swivel joint allows the mic to be easily positioned and secured and an isolation shock-mount reduces the transmission of instrument "key noise" and other mechanical noise. A gooseneck angle brace is included to provide better retention of the microphone placement during more active performances.

The Beta 98 H/C and WB98 H/C feature transformerless preamplifier circuitry which improves linearity across the full frequency range.

The pickup pattern provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise.

Its high maximum sound pressure level (SPL) enables it to handle the extreme demands of brass, woodwind and percussion instruments.

The Beta98H/C features a 3 m (10 ft.) high-flex cable with attached preamplifier (XLR connection).
The WB98H/C features a 1.6 m (5.3ft) high-flex cable terminating in a 4-pin mini-connector for use with wireless bodypack transmitters.
Tailored frequency response for open, natural sound reproduction.
Compact, lightweight construction provides a low degree of visibility.
Gooseneck, ratcheting swivel joint and gooseneck angle brace allow for optimum placement and fixed positioning.
Legendary Shure ruggedness and reliability.

Searched and used a multitude of mics for playing Bodhran. THIS IS THE MIC TO USE for studio and live applications.

I have used this microphone for many years with my saxophone and have been quite pleased with the quality of sound. It sometimes trips up sound engineers because it's phantom powered. I did have to get the clip replaced once because it fell apart,but there have been no other issues. The cable can be tricky to manage too.

I use this particular mic for purcussion. Excellent SPL mic. Very versitile. Mixes well, very little feedback issues. Crisp, clear and light weight. No better mic for the price.
